BA (Hons) Fashion student Graduate of UCA Epsom, Class of 2015.

My inspirations derive from sub cultures and modern documentary photographers. Concepts often emerge from the stories of the people within the photographs. Exploring who they are and translating this into textile and styling inspiration. My strengths are researching, textile design and trend awareness. The thrill after production, is styling the finished product. The prospect of storytelling with the garments to be captured for a lifetime.
